KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia vehemently condemns the Israeli attacks in the southern Gaza city of Rafah on 21st April 2024 where at least 22 innocent Palestinians were killed including 18 children.

Foreign Affairs Ministry in a statement said, the situation in Rafah is extremely delicate given the high risk of a humanitarian catastrophe.

“With over 1.5 million Palestinians residing in crowded makeshift shelters within a 64 sq.km strip of land, any attack would have devastating consequences.

 “Any Israeli aggression will result in significant loss of life. Rafah is the last bastion and refuge for Palestinians fleeing from northern Gaza since 198 days ago. There is nowhere else they could run,” the ministry said in its statement.

The statement added, Israel’s beligerance knows no bounce as if it totally disregards the red line set by its closest ally.

“Last month Israel was warned by it allies that it should refrain from attacking Rafah as it would be a mistake,” the ministry reiterates.

Meanwhile, the Ministry also affirms that the recent attack only proves the intransigence of Israel.

The Ministry in its statement also highlighted that the international community must continue to denounce Israel’s aggression, insist on an immediate cessation of hostilities, recognize and uphold Palestine’s statehood and actively pursue justice that has been denied for over seven decades. -Malaysia World News
